The Cincinnati Bengals lead at the break in their clash with the Detroit Lions thanks to a late first-half touchdown from Marlon Jones.

The Cincinnati Bengals have a narrow lead over the Detroit Lions in a clash of 4-2 teams at Ford Field.

The Bengals started the game well and took the lead within two minutes as Andy Dalton fooled the Lions defense with a play-action pass and hit AJ Green deep down the right-hand sideline. He dodged the tackle of Chris Houston and ran the ball in for a 77-yard score.

Matt Stafford and his offense responded for the Lions with a methodical drive downfield using the running ability Reggie Bush before they got into the red zone where Stafford hit tight end Brandon Pettigrew for a three-yard touchdown to tie the scores.

David Akers kicked his side into the lead with a 36-yarder but later in the half had a field goal attempt blocked, which set up a scoring drive for the Bengals as Dalton found Marvin Jones in the end zone just before the break to give the visitors the advantage.
